Gayle Saunders and Patricia Reid were total opposites who chose each other as best friends when they were children. Through the years they were raised together, as close as sisters. Gayle, the beauty pampered by her working-class parents, believes a man will make her world complete. Pat, the brainy one, is the hand-me-down child whose mystery parentage haunts her. She's determined to finally make a home for herself: in the executive suite at the top of her career. And then there is Marcus Carter, linked to both women from the moment a childhood tragedy bonds them in secrecy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I cannot rave ENOUGH about this book; the relationships between Gayle, Pat and Marcus were so realistic. There were so many great twists and turns that I enjoyed immensely. It was not predictable at all and it actually got me talking to myself in public! LOL I will definitely be searching for more books from these best-friend authors.

Editorial Reviews

"Their heroines are balanced and clearly drawn, while their plot manages to spring myriad surprises without resorting to obvious gimmickry. In an age when personal responsibility is often abrogated in the name of early childhood emotional trauma, Pat and Gayle are refreshingly honest characters, accepting of their own and each other's shortcomings." - Publishers Weekly
